Flatter Review

Ok, on a more cheerful note 🙂  I recently purchased a bottle of Flatter from my favorite fabric store, The French Seam.  I had heard it mentioned on a podcast and then read the excellent review in May/June issue of Generation Q, so I thought I would try it out.

flatterFlatter is made by the same folks that make Soak Wash.  It is marketed as a “smoothing spray” and not intended to be “starchy”.  So if you’re looking for a product that will make your fabric really stiff, this isn’t it.

It comes in 3 scents (Celebration, Yuzu, and Fig) and also a scentless option for those with a more delicate nose.  I tried Celebration first and loved it so much I bought the Yuzu next.  I have yet to try the Fig, but it’s on my list for sure.  I really, really love this stuff!  It’s a little pricey at $12.99 for 8.4 oz, but it makes me smile…and right now, that’s worth a lot.  I just bought a bottle for my Mom as well, as she heads back to Florida.  A little spritz goes a long way.

Here’s the link to the GenQ issue that has the review.  It got really high marks and was the only spray that didn’t stain red fabric.  I have had very little flaking with this product (actually…none).  So, I still love Mary Ellen’s Best Press (Cherry Blossom or Lavender Fields), but this is my new fav 🙂  I’ve been using it exclusively on this quilt (Scout – pattern from Cluck, Cluck, Sew).  Looking forward to finishing this top later today and maybe some quilting towards the end of next week or during some insomnia hours, lol.

  1. I heard an interview on Modern Sewciety with the lady who owns the company that makes flatter and soak, but have yet to try them. I’m glad you had a good experience. I think I will try the fig first, as I love a dig handsoap from TJ Maxx so I think I would like that smell. Your top is gorgeous, I can’t wait to see what quilting design you’ll come up with. Do you have the backing for it already? What’s watermelon moscato? Some kind of alcoholic beverage? :))))

    • that’s where I first heard about Flatter, and then Courtney had some in her shop and I had to give it a try. I like it 🙂 Yes, watermelon moscato is moscato wine flavored with watermelon. I’m not normally a sweet wine drinker, usually prefer Merlot or PInot, but this is really nice for the summer.

I love comments :)
